A novel series of linear hydrogen-bonded (HB) liquid crystalline (LC) complexes (HBLCs), namely Py16BA:noBAs, is reported. The series was prepared by the complexation of a novel non-mesogenic proton acceptor moiety, namely (4-pyridyl)-benzylidene-4′-n-hexadecyl aniline (Py16BA), with a mesogenic proton donor, p-n-alkoxy benzoic acid (noBAs for n = 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 12) moieties. Formation of HB complexes is confirmed through FTIR spectra. The LC phases exhibited by Py16BA:noBAs, the…
